Named for the island it was inspired by, Bora Bora is vibrant yet serene, suited for the quintessential summer girl. This design is perfect for the beach house or for anyone longing for escape to cocktail umbrellas and cabanas. It is intended to transport the recipient by extracting the colors from these lush, verdant islands – sea, sand, sun and, of course, palm trees. Subtle details include coral-like Celosia and the spiky sea urchin Dianthus. The flowers crash over the driftwood like waves washing away your cares. Cabana boy not included.
